EDIT: My post here is a pretty good example of irresponsible "reporting". Not that I think you come here for stats, but once in awhile I use them and I was so wrong in this post it's just embarrassing.
I got a comment you can read below (see Dennis Meyer) that made me find the piece of paper I did my original math on, and I found my mistake (explained in response to Dennis' comment).
Tyler Colvin is not half the walker that DeJesus is, he's more like 85% the walker that DeJesus is.
I apologize to you and especially to Tyler Colvin, and I'll make it up to him soon.
And Dennis, thank you for your comment.
I feel like a boob.
Well, it looks like if you're gonna be a Chicago Cub any more, you better learn plate discipline.
A little patience.
Make the pitcher work.
That kinda stuff.
Tyler Colvin, he can hit a homer once in awhile, but he ain't no walker.
David DeJesus on the other hand, has 359 walks in his 3797 career at-bats.
Young Tyler, he's got 46 in his 581 career at-bats.
If you pro Tyler's 581 at-bats to 3797, his walks project to about 300.
(That's me doing math, so as always there's a giant chance it's wrong, but whatever.)
So very roughly, Tyler is about half the walker David is.
Anyway, it's the new regime, and it's very interesting.
I always liked Tyler Colvin, but I tell ya... if I'm a Cub minor leaguer, I sure as hell am going to become waaaay more disciplined at the plate.
Okay, gotta scram.
